Ornette Coleman – Tomorrow Is The Question!


The last two years of the 1950s and early years of the ’60s saw Ornette Coleman exert a profound influence on the future direction of jazz. It was a remarkably fertile time for him as a composer. This set amply demonstrates his composing skill. Tunes like “Tears Inside,” “Turnaround,” and the aching beauty of “Lorraine” are brilliant and, in a perfect world, should be standard jazz repertoire today. Coleman quickly broke through to a new freedom in jazz. He would soon find more receptive players to work alongside than on this recording; however, the playing is still of high caliber and the tunes are now justly legendary.

Personnel: Ornette Coleman (alto saxophone); Don Cherry (trumpet); Percy Heath, Red Mitchell (bass); Shelly Manne (drums).
